To the man who should have lived forever,
You were kind. You were strong. You were bold. You were fearless. You were all things beautiful and simple. You are my grandpa.
We all have someone who comes into our lives and changes it forever. Somebody you look up to in hopes that one day you will be as successful in life as they were. Someone who impacts you so much that you think they are invincible until the day they pass away.
Death is inevitable but you never think it'll happen to someone who was a real life angel.
You should have lived forever.
You lived a long, eventful life and impacted every single person you ever met. Especially me. I would never gotten to experience being the president of my FFA chapter and my FFA district if it wasn't for your heroic life i wrote about in my speech. I was so nervous but i knew you were standing next to me.
I thought you walked on water
"If the story was told,only heaven knows. But his hat seemed to me like an old halo. And though his wings, they were never seen. I thought that he walked on water."
I would not be the person i am today without the legacy you left behind. When you were here you taught me to be strong and when you left you taught my heart how to be strong because i thought life without you wasn't possible but here i am today, living out my dream because i know for a fact that's all you wished for, is for your family to live out their dream.
We all have someone we wished lived forever because the world becomes so different when they leave. However, it's okay. They're up there loving and supporting you just as much as they were when they were here.
To the man who should have lived forever, i love you.
